DragonCon question... [Mar. 20th, 2011|10:29 am]
Verminius Rex
I'm considering attending DragonCon this year (friend has a room block with space to crash), so I'm wondering who plans to go to DragonCon, how you plan to get there (flying or driving) and if you plan to take costuming how you generally transport your stuff.

I usually fly. Last year I drove and that was nice, but it was a heck of a drive. When I fly I pay for 3 checked bags and usually mail a package ahead to a friend as well. Then again, I usually take two costumes a day and at least one is a big competition piece, and I also usually have stuff for the costuming track panels or displays. The only problem with flying with so much luggage is that you need to take a taxi or van from the airport, it's difficult-to-impossible to navigate the subway system with so much luggage (which is too bad because the train goes from the airport directly to the mall next door to the Hyatt).

Ooh, Yayes! Michelle and I go (as well six or eight various collected peoples that we're suckering into filling out our own room block). We fly and I try to plan my costumes so that I can use two check bags and a carry on that can be swung over my shoulder so that we can take the train. I mailed ahead anything particularly bulky or hard to fly with or sent it with someone local who's driving. Quidditch brooms and swords have traveled this way before. It's usually not much, but it's enough.
